OVERVIEW

The Technical Operations Council is responsible for addressing policies related to technical program management, industrial base, operations, quality assurance and engineering that impact the A & D industry within the scope of research, engineering, development, test, manufacturing, quality, material management, product support, information transfer, and safety aspects of producing aircraft, missiles, and space vehicles. The TOC operates through its committees to ensure AIAs Strategic directives are being fulfilled and resources are used effectively. The TOC engages with government peers to be current on relevant policy and advocate on behalf of industry. In addition, the TOC promotes the development, growth and adoption of industry standards and standardization practices through AIA’s National Aerospace Standards program.
